Week Beginning 15th November 2021
The children in the ELC have been learning about Remembrance Day. They have been sharing their thoughts on why we have this and have created their own poppies. The children also observed a minutes silence to remember and think about those who keep us safe. As a group they visited the war memorial at Dollar Academy and saw their beautiful clay poppies. It has been interesting learning about events from the past.
P1 have been learning about hibernation. The children talked about which animals hibernate and can say what hibernation is. Ask us if you see us!
P2’s highlight of the week was visiting the P5 Roman Museum. We were all very excited to visit the museum as we had noticed it when walking in the corridor each morning. The P5s worked so hard to learn all about the Romans and show off their learning in such a fun and creative way. We were all super impressed at all the Lego models, story writing, photographs and even a shield made from bread! Well done P5 and thank you for inviting us.
P3/4A and P3/4B
When asked to share their highlight of this week, everyone in P3/4 agreed that visiting the P5 Roman Museum had to be selected.
We had the most fantastic time learning all about the Romans. We were very impressed with the hard work that had gone into creating their models and writing their stories. We were also greeted by very knowledgeable P5 hosts that had some amazing information to share with us. Thank you P5F and P5G and well done for all your hard work!

Primary 5 embraced the challenge of becoming tour guides and showcasing their Roman Museum to our younger pupils on Friday morning. Each Primary 5 pupil had a specific role within their team. they spoke with confidence and answered questions fully, demonstrating their knowledge of the Romans, as well as their impressive presentation skills. Great job!
In Primary 6, our highlight of the week has been taking part in social dance in our P.E. lessons. We have been practising outside in our school playground and taking advantage of some of the lovely November weather we have been experiencing. So far, we have learned the Dashing White Sergeant, the Canadian Barn Dance and the St Bernard’s Waltz. These are three well-known, traditional Scottish dances that are often danced at weddings and ceilidhs. It has been great fun and we’ll be using some of these dances at our Christmas party later this term too. Who knew Scottish ceilidh dancing could be so tiring?
This week in Primary seven we have started to learn Scots language. One of our tasks this week was to translate riddles from Scots to English to try and solve the riddle. We have learnt some news words such as ‘bubblyjock’ which means turkey and ‘dub’ which means puddle. We have even been able to write in Scots!
